ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -- Holladay Road rallied from last to beat Obsess by a length Thursday in the $49,050 Road to Slew Purse at Santa Anita.
Ridden by Garrett Gomez, Holladay Road ran 612 furlongs in 1:15.19 and paid $5.80, $3.40 and $3.40.
Obsess returned $5.60 and $5, and Sammy's a Runnin' paid $4.20 to show.
Obsess nearly lost Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith at the start when he stumbled so badly his nose hit the ground.
The race was moved from Santa Anita's turf course to the main dirt track following rain Wednesday.
The victory, worth $28,800, increased Holladay Road's career earnings to $113,380, with four wins in 10 starts.
